Medical Malpractice

Some medical malpractice claims are very obvious such as leaving medical equipment in a body after surgery or amputating the wrong limb, however, not all medical malpractice cases are that clear. Medical malpractice can cause minor injuries and it can cause devastating injuries. Sometimes it is unclear whether or not your injuries are the result of medical malpractice or simply bad luck. It is also hard to know if what your medical professionals are telling you is true and if there is more to the story than what you are being told. Not every mistake made by a medical professional constitutes malpractice, so that complicates matters even further.

In order to make a case for medical malpractice, you must be able to prove that the care you received fell below acceptable medical care. If you believe you have been injured due to a medical professional’s unacceptable medical care, contact Fort Worth medical malpractice attorney, Dorothy Hyde, to schedule a consultation. Our medical malpractice experts will go over the facts of your case and evaluate the strength of your medical malpractice claim. If you have been injured by medical malpractice, you deserve to be fully and fairly compensated for your injuries.

Common types of medical malpractice and injuries

Medical malpractice happens in all types of medical venues including hospitals, pharmacies, medical clinics, medical practices, rehabilitation facilities, etc. Medical malpractice often occurs in the following situations:

  • Unnecessary procedure – When someone is injured as a result of or a complication from an unnecessary medical procedure.
  • Diagnosis – Misdiagnosis (when a diagnosis is incorrect), failure to diagnose (when an accurate diagnosis of a condition is not made), or delayed diagnosis (when a diagnosis is not timely made and the delay causes the patient’s condition to worsen) can sometimes be a result of medical malpractice if it can be shown that the medical professional’s care fell below acceptable medical care.
  • Failure to inform – Medical professionals have an obligation to inform patients about recommended treatments, associated risks, and any alternative treatments available. Patients need to have all of the information in order to weigh the risks and benefits in order to make an informed decision about undergoing the treatment or procedure.
  • Inadequate aftercare – A medical professional’s duty of care to his or her patient does not end once a medical procedure is over. Aftercare is important to make sure that there is no infection or other negative consequence or side effect, that the patient is healing properly, and that the procedure resolved the medical problem.
  • Inadequate health management – Sometimes medical malpractice is not a result of a specific incident, but it is a result of overall poor health management that causes injuries to the patient.
  • Inadequate treatment – When an appropriate diagnosis is made, but treatment is not adequate or is incorrect, you may have a case for medical malpractice.
